BEASTIE BOYS lyrics : "Johnny Ryall"

Johnny Ryall is the bum on my stoop
I gave him fifty cents to buy some soup
He knows the time with the fresh Gucci watch

He's even more over than the mayor Ed Koch
Washing windows on the Bowery at a quarter to four
'Cause he ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more

Living on borrowed time and borrowed money
Sleepin' on the street there ain't a damn thing funny
Hand me down food and hand me down clothes

A rockabilly past of which nobody knows
Makes his home all over the place
He goes to sleep by falling down on his face

Sometimes known as the leader of the homeless
Sometimes drunk and he's always phoneless
Sleepin' on the street in a cardboard box

He's better off drinkin' than smokin' the rocks
Johnny Ryall, Johnny Ryall


He drinks where he lies
He's covered with flies
He's got the hand me down Pumas and the tie dyes

Go upstate and get your head together
Thunderbird is the word and you're light as a feather
Detox at the flop house no booze allowed

Remember the good old days with the rockabilly crowd
Memphis is where he's from
He lives in the street but he's no bum

A rockabilly star from the days of old
He used to have teeth all filled with gold
A platinum voice but only gold records

On the bass was boots on the drums was checkers
Luis Vuitton with the Gucci guitar
Johnny Ryall

Who do you think you are
Johnny Ryall, Johnny Ryall


Donald Trump Donald Tramp living in the Men's Shelter
Wonder Bread bag shoes and singing Helter Skelter
He asks for a dollar you know what it's for

Bottle after bottle he'll always need more
He's no less important than you working class stiffs
Drinks a lot of liquor but he don't drink piss

Paid his dues playing the blues
He claims that he wrote the Blue Suede Shoes
Elvis shaved his head when he went into the army

That's right y'all his name is
Johnny
Johnny Ryall, Johnny Ryall
